The middle class in some parts
Are those who are increasingly aware of their rights
And working to fully exploit their opportunities
While at the same time distancing themselves from greater responsibility.
Having fought for their spot in the sun
They now count it too costly to question why it shines so bright on so few.
It is those who make compelling political arguments
But don’t go out to vote.
The ones who have the power to participate in meaningful change
But spend their efforts on getting a larger piece of the pie
Knowing full well that their activity ( or rather inactivity) is condoning prevailing inequality.
Its the fodder for disjointed regimes
Where tyrants keep everyone busy with their own business
And doing little for the greater good. Leaving the elites free to do as they please.
These members of the middle class find themselves comfortably in the middle of things;
Far enough from depravity to not be inconvenienced by it
And just the right distance away from disorder to not be held responsible for it.
Its the perfect spot in a society with lots of problems to fix
And lots of fortune to gain.
And when asked where they find themselves in all this, they are never the problem (nor the solution), but always somewhere in the middle.
